Guest Groups: Tea Party With a Modern Palette

Daydreaming about spring? The forthcoming season is all about color, so now’s the time to start infusing your own wardrobe, your house and your decoration with splashes of your favorite colors.

Spring colours do not necessarily have to be pastels, however. To get a more modern palette, consider combining brights like citron, salmon, lime, persimmon, teal and aquamarine. While working on this ideabook, I watched those color mixes all over the stores and online. I believe this palette will be popular this year.

To celebrate the modern and to welcome the new season, throw a tea party with those 20 brilliant finds. — Lauren from Lauren Elise Crafted

Bistro 750 Wallpaper – $28.06

This illustrated background was my inspiration for this entire ideabook. For me personally, the concept of a tea party pops up pictures of doilies and tea cozies and kitschy floral prints. The modern, bright colours here are quite the reverse. A tea party with this color scheme could be all fun, not frumpy.

Kitchen of the Week: Aqua Knockout at Austin

Formal dining moved out the window when designer Jennifer Ott remodeled the kitchen in her Austin, Texas, home. Ott and her husband did not use the huge closed-off dining room next to the first small kitchen, so they knocked down the walls to create a modern, ample space for entertaining as well as cooking. Bold colors, two pantries, clever cupboard designs along with a smart breakfast nook today give her the room and style she’s craved.

Loop Design

Ott needed plenty of countertop to share with her husband, and room for two guests and cooks to move smoothly around the kitchen. “I’m a lover of generous aisle widths,” she states. “If you cook or entertain often and have the space, I suggest 48-inch into 54-inch wide aisles. Greater than 54 inches starts to feel overly wide, and you’ll feel like you have run a marathon after building a meal” Following the remodel, the kitchen is 250 square foot, and the dining space is 115 square foot.

Cabinetry: Ikea base cupboard boxes, Texas Trim pecan door and drawer fronts; shelving: habit pecan; countertops: concrete by Caesarstone; stove, hood: Wolf

Loop Design

Following the walls between the original kitchen and dining rooms were knocked down, architect Christy Seals of Loop Design needed to incorporate a large beam to support the loading of the second story, which was rather a challenge. Because the beam is a foot thick, it meant they needed to lower the ceiling height in this field. However, Ott loves the varying ceiling heights — they allow for a subtle willingness from the kitchen and intimacy from the dining area.

Ott picked the colors based on housewares she had fallen in love with. Her strategy was to use neutral colors for substances that are costly or hard to change — such as the quartz countertop and concrete floor — and use bold colors for substances that are economical and easy to replace — such as paint and accessories.

Floors: concrete overlay; wall paint: Parakeet, Sherwin Williams; island paint: Larchmere, Sherwin Williams; bar stools: Ikea

Loop Design

Although she loves her kitchen neat and clean, Ott isn’t always able to stay on top of putting everything off. She made the window seat as a secret storage space, with a massive space for oversize and little-used products. Two pantries at the end of the kitchen help with this too. Since the pantries are behind closed doors, she doesn’t have to be concerned about them being spotless.

Refrigerator: Samsung; pendants at dining room: Firefly, CB2; window seat cloth: Little Dandelion, Premier Prints

Loop Design

Ott put extra-large drawers at the bottom cabinets, rather than fixed shelves, making it easier for her to reach kitchen items. Often-used bowls, plates and glasses were put on the open pecan shelvingsystem, to stop constant dusting. Ott also used the house’s existing plumbing to keep down costs. This limited the kitchen’s layout, but they had lots of room to work with.

“nobody comes with an unlimited budget, so it’s good to determine what your priorities are and place the money from the items that make the most sense for you, for how you’ll use your kitchen,” Ott says. “I do not bake, so that I did not want two separate wall ovens. It might be a popular must-have for a great deal of people, but we simply didn’t want it”

Steer the Sun and Shade With Louvers

The most effective architectural design — contemporary, conventional, whatever the situation may be — chooses the natural surroundings into consideration. Architectural type, materials and assemblies should react to sunlight, wind and other factors of climate. One means of addressing sunlight is with louvers — closely spaced slats that allow the sun’s rays to pass through specific times of the day, producing shade at other occasions.

The following examples illustrate how louvers can be oriented vertically on a facade or as a trellis. The majority fall into the latter category, as spending some time outdoors while still having some respite from the sun is a popular reason to use louvers. For much more shading ideas, see my posts on timber slats and sunshades.

Wheeler Kearns Architects

The horizontal louvers located on the outside of the house designed by Wheeler Kearns Architects are located on the projecting quantity at left along with a stair which sits between it and the more solid place on the right side.

Wheeler Kearns Architects

It’s simple to see why louvers were used here: All these are the areas with the most transparency. In the instance of the foreground quantity, a screened porch, the louvers wrap the top half (approximately) of three sides.

Wheeler Kearns Architects

By increasing the louvers above door height, views from the seating area inside to the landscape are rather open. The amount, horizontal profile and standing of the louvers means the large, midday sunlight is blocked but the very low sunlight can come through.

Wheeler Kearns Architects

The louvers are articulated in precisely the same fashion from the stair, filtering the light which enters the tall space. The louvers mitigate the impact of the sunlight on the space, keeping it from turning into a greenhouse in warmer months.

Wheeler Kearns Architects

Here is the view from the staircase out to the landscape, together with the screened seats area seen beyond.

Baldridge Architects

Baldridge Architects’ aptly named Courtyard House is highlighted with a large trellis within the decked outdoor space. With the louvers oriented vertically (the opposite of the former example), the sun is allowed to input when it’s directly overhead but is filtered when in an angle.

Baldridge Architects

This daytime photo shows the trellis in action. It’s important to be aware that the louvers work in concert with all the surrounding trees, so more shade is provided together than independently.

Baldridge Architects

When seen from inside, the trellis appears to function as an exterior ceiling, solid at a few angles. This provides a enclosure and privacy to the space adjacent to the glass walls.

Rudolfsson Alliker Associates Architects

Much like the preceding instance is the home in Sydney, Australia, designed by Rudolfsson Alliker Associates Architects. The trellis also sits just outside the glass walls, in this instance sliding walls that connect inside and out.

Rudolfsson Alliker Associates Architects

The placement of the louvers makes it seem they are a continuation of the ceiling, making a stronger tie between inside and out in line with the remainder of the design.

Rudolfsson Alliker Associates Architects

Nevertheless the timber used for the louvers provides the trellis some warmth which the rest of the layout lacks in its minimalism.

Rudolfsson Alliker Associates Architects

This detail shows the simplicity of the layout: closely spaced wood slats attached to paired galvanized steel angles.

Studio Saved – ASAP House

Studio ASAP’s ASAP House on New York’s Long Island features a red trellis in the rear which is apparently completely different — visually and physically — from the home, a straightforward one-story box. That they function together is evident from the way the trellis columns sit between each set of double doors.

Studio Saved – ASAP House

The trellis is capped in translucent, corrugated plastic, shielding the occupants from rain as well as sunlight.

Studio Saved – ASAP House

Another Studio Kiss project features a trellis more in tune with its house, but there’s still something to it that makes it feel as the trellis is a great addition. In fact the project is a renovation with a new front porch.

Studio Saved – ASAP House

The trellis sits in the front edge of the new porch, behaving like a screen between the street and the home. It’s an interesting design that provides a little bit of privacy to some side not normally used to it. I really could see a barbecue occurring here, as opposed to out back.

Studio Saved – ASAP House

The stepping from the wall creates places to sit down, aided by the wall’s thickness.

Rooms Spring to Life With Unusual Patterns

It is tempting to write something about these daring floral designs “not being your grandmother’s chintz.” But it some cases they are your grandmother’s chintz. And there’s nothing wrong with that.

The blossom print has come a long way since Louis XIV, also there are lots of daring, contemporary floral designs on all manner of things, from carpeting to walls. But there’s no reason to take sides. Bold blossom designs are stunning whether traditional or contemporary, all around the place or sprinkled reasonably. They could fit in everywhere. As always, it is dependent on how you utilize them.

Ed Ritger Photography

This glowing yellow flowered wallpaper is cheerfulness on a roster.

Dewson Construction Company

I am a giant fan of mixing up things, and this room certainly does that. It’ll be just a moment before a daffy old Englishwoman brings you some tea.

Only a hint of chintz. The throw pillows on the seat add a feminine, welcoming touch to what looks like quite a comfy room.

Flea Market Sunday

An accent wall done in a superbold poppy wallpaper adds color, texture and also a lot of character to this room. It is nice to see an ocean-view room that is not all blue and beige.

Rachel Reider Interiors

The pattern with this Flower Quince wallpaper from Clarence House is so subjective and daring, it almost looks like splatter artwork.

Period Homes, Inc..

Completely buttoned up and totally wild at the same time. This giant, blown-up chinoiserie pattern is so stunning.

Ninainvorm

Even with this yummy wildflower paper, this room is contemporary eclectic all of the way. (It likely has something to do with the bombshell within the mattress.)

JMA INTERIOR DESIGN

Now this is devotion. Flowers, flowers everywhere and curtains that fit the walls. It is Grandma’s room on steroids.

Dufner Heighes Inc

Why don’t you add a wall of flowers to your midcentury modern living room? It can help to soften all of the angles.

The Lettered Cottage

There’s no need to go all out. Keep it easy, with just a little splash of flowers (covering the chair has much more effect than a few throw pillows).

Window Washing Advice from Experts

Window washing is an essential part of routine maintenance for both residential and commercial buildings. However, it can be a challenging task. Cleaning windows effectively requires a wide range of techniques. The aim is to make sure that your windows are properly cleaned in a safe, sustainable, and less costly manner. In case you are planning to do this job, there are a few tips you can explore. These tips come directly from window cleaning professionals and they should help you do a great job.

The Tools You Need

You can never do proper window installation without the right tools. The great thing is that you only need simple household items for the job. You will need a razor scraper, soft sponges, two buckets, squeegees, and some paper towels for drying. You can get extended poles for the squeegees if you are cleaning windows above the ground floor.

Recommended Products for Washing

Cleaning products range depending on what you are looking for. Experts often recommend the use of Unger products. There is often a strong tendency among homeowners to use ammonia. This is not a good idea. Unger products are available online or in your local store. They are environmentally sustainable, safe to use, and highly effective.

The Washing Process

Once you have the tools needed and the cleaning materials, it’s time to start the job. The first thing is to put a drop cloth down to ensure that any dirt coming from the windows does not damage your floors. Go ahead and wipe down the window sill and the window frames. There will be sap accumulating if the windows have not been cleaned for a while. Use the razor scraper to get rid of it. If there is paint on the glass, the scraper will work too. Once the sap is removed, you can now scrub the panes using the soft sponge, water, and the cleaning agent you have. Once the windows are properly cleaned, go ahead and dry them with the paper towels and the squeegees.

Safety Considerations

Window cleaning can be a dangerous activity if you don’t take the required safety measures to protect yourself. Experts recommend a wide range of safety considerations. To start with, if you don’t really have to use a ladder there is no need to go for it. For two or three story buildings, using an extension pole to reach windows at the top floors is highly recommended. Also, don’t sit on the window sill. It’s a very small space and any slip might lead to serious injury.

Hiring a Professional Cleaner

There is still the option to hire a professional window repair service provider if indeed you don’t want to go through all these troubles. A professional cleaner will be ideal for homeowners who don’t have time to clean on their own. They will also be a perfect choice in case the homeowner is away or the cleaning job is too much for one person to handle.

Clean windows are important in maintaining a healthy living space in your home. The simple expert advices above should help you a lot in this process.

How to Figure What to Pay to lease a Room

When deciding on a room to rent it is important that you are paying a fair market rate. Renting rooms typically mean living with roommates or occupying a master bedroom in someone’s home. Some landlords may attempt to overcharge, particularly in low-vacancy places, in an effort to make as much profit as you can. You won’t necessarily have the ability to negotiate a fair price to rent a room, but doing your homework and with full knowledge of going rates can allow you to determine whether you are being overcharged.

Research costs for rooms in the section of town or area where you are looking to rent. Peruse classified advertisements and websites which post leases to compare different costs. See the difference between renting a bedroom and also that of a studio or one bedroom apartment; the bedroom ought to be less money since you are sharing a room.

Notice all of the conditions of this bedroom. Factors like the square footage, the quantity and size of closets, amount of sunlight and location of the bedroom in the house are all important to consider when comparing prices. Also expect to pay extra when you have a private bath.

Factor in the amount of people you will possibly be alive with. More people may indicate you will have less privacy. Instead, a greater quantity of roommates should bring the price down since the rent is going to be split among more people.

Think about the comforts of the various homes that you visit. More perks may drive the price up. Comforts like parking, backyard, cable TV and wireless Internet service might raise the purchase price. Also ask whether the cost for utilities is included in the rent or if there’ll be additional charges each month.

Ask about the length of the rental. Some landlords will lower the price a bit for a more lease; having a reliable tenant can be worth the lower cost. Just the same, shorter leases may be above market value, since the spouse or owner has to spend his time looking for a new renter in only a few months, for example.

How to Determine the Year a Table Lamp Was Manufactured

Table lights produced by famous designers usually have a date stamp, a item number or the company’s name listed on them someplace. By establishing the date of an antique table lamp, you can discover its value or locate any replacement parts needed. Begin by identifying the manner of table lamp you have, like an Art Nouveau, an Art Deco lamp or a hurricane boudoir lamp, to establish the manufacturer and its era.

Maker’s Hallmark

One of the first places to search for a date stamp or the maker’s hallmark starts with an examination of the base of the lamp which sits around the table. Pick up the lamp and look for a manufacturer’s emblem, name or date stamp embedded into the base. Also look about the lighting fixture itself; occasionally, the manufacturer includes a sticker that includes the name, or date of manufacture.

Antique Lamps

If you’ve got a vintage table lamp and cannot discover a hallmark, a date stamp or another identifying feature, locate a collector’s book on lights to identify the manufacturer, which might help you discover the date that the lamp was made. You can also check auction sites for lamps similar to yours to get an idea of how old it might take or take the lamp to an antiques dealer or collector to get help.

How to Cut Back Butterfly Milkweed

Butterfly weed (Asclepias tuberosa) creates green foliage through summer and spring and clusters of small red, orange or yellow flowers. It rises at U.S. Department of Agriculture plant hardiness zones 4 through 10. The plant dies back each winter, but it yields out of its ongoing root system annually if it is maintained properly pruned. All areas of the butterfly weed are poisonous if eaten.

Wipe the pruning shears with a cloth soaked in rubbing alcohol to disinfect them before pruning, and then wipe them again when moving between plants. Wear heavy gloves to protect your hands in the sap, which can cause skin irritation.

Cut back the entire plant by one third to one-half its previous height in late winter or early spring before new growth emerges. Make the seams in 1/4-inch of a leaf or leaf bud so the bush doesn’t have bare stems poking out. Eliminate all pruning clippings in the bed after pruning and dispose of them.

Eliminate the wilting flowers after the first flush of blooms begin to fade, slowly cutting the blossom cluster above the topmost group of leaves on the stem. Removing the dead flowers prevents seed formation, which promotes butterfly weed to produce more flowers. Stop deadheading in late summer if you would like ornamental seed pods on the plants in autumn and winter.

Prune off the seed pods in late autumn or early winter should youn’t want the butterfly weed to self-seed, or simply to enhance the garden’s look. Wait until spring to cut back the entire plant.

How to Wash Oil-Finished Furniture

Oil-finished furniture picks up dirt quickly than furniture with a lacquer or polyurethane finish, mainly since the wood grain is slightly raised and catches dust and dirt as it floats by. You can keep the furniture looking great by dusting it frequently, but sometimes you want to wipe it down with a cleaning solution to remove the ground-in dirt. You will need a very particular type of cleaner, without any water, wax or furniture polish to build up on the surface and dull the appearance of the wood.

Utilize a lint-free, soft fabric without buttons or zippers for dusting. Avoid using a feather duster — it doesn’t remove dust and can actually make the surface duller.

Clean out the wood regularly with a solution consisting of 1-cup boiled linseed oil, 1-cup turpentine and 1/3-cup white vinegar. The turpentine and vinegar cut through grime while the linseed oil revitalizes the oil finish.

Wipe the solution on the wood with a clean cloth; do not pour it on. Allow the solution remain on the surface for several minutes; then rub it off with another clean, lint-free fabric. Wipe along the grain of the wood.

5 Tips for Lightening the Load of Your Closet

It is a mess, it is uncontrollable, and you need space. You are going to handle the entire thing, and you’re not going to allow sentimentality weaken your resolve. You have had an epiphany, and you’re ready to clean out your clothes closet!

But as you pull out this first item, it happens: Your ever-so-rational mind starts building an ever-so-rational situation for keeping almost every article of clothing you were just prepared to throw.

We have all been there, so don’t despair. Whether you’re fueled by enthusiasm or trembling with trepidation, these tips tips will start you on your path.

1. Notice the explanations. Such as:

“I really paid a lot for that.” “I just haven’t gotten around to sporting that yet.” “That only needs altering.” “I will fit back to that among these days.” “Fashions always return around. “Sound familiar? We all have things we hold on to. Notice the reasons that pop into your mind, because once you understand your motives for holding on to these things, you will be better able to proceed and make space — literally and figuratively.

Start by eliminating 10 items (or five — simply select a number that isn’t zero). In one quick sweep, you might be amazed what you may throw without a struggle. If you’re terrified of biting off more than you can chew, be assured that you may accomplish a fantastic deal nibble by nibble, drawer by drawer, row by row.

Monarch Renovations

2. Unburden yourself of the unworn. We have all heard that unless it is a cocktail gown or your wedding dress, you ought to eliminate it if you haven’t worn it in a few months. For a lot of us, that’s easier said than done. It might even seem downright unreasonable. However there are ways to put this in perspective.

Our memory can be faulty, so try using these nifty tricks to keep track of everything you really wear. Buy pretty fresh hangers, and every time you wear something, put it on one of these new hangers. You can achieve the same effect without investment by turning all of your hangers backward. As soon as you’ve worn something, replace it with the hanger hung forward.

Cabinet Innovations

If it comes to your drawers and shelves, it is likely that the stuff squashed in the corners and crumpled on the bottom are items you truly don’t use. But if you want to be certain, take everything out and put a small, brightly colored decal (the type you find at an office supply store) on every clothing tag and remove the decal after you have worn the item. You’ll soon see what you really like to wear and what is just taking up valuable real estate. Then shift accordingly.

Also, take a closer look when you trade out your seasonal clothing. If you didn’t wear it a year, odds are good that you’re not going to wear this season, so don’t hang it up and do not pack it up — contribute it. You know you will find more things this year, so go ahead and make space for it.

3. Multiply your distance by reducing the multiples. Have you got five white blouses, black skirts or pink stripes? Various styles for different outfits — I know, I know! But at least one generally remains unworn or is ill fitting. Toss merely one of these multiples and you have instantly gifted yourself with 20 percent more distance.

4. Dump the damaged goods. Is it pilling, tattered, snagged, threadbare? If it’s sentimental, wash it, fold it and put it into a box. If it isn’t, throw it. Is it at a heap awaiting stain treatment, repairs or alterations? Looking at a heap of things you haven’t cared may create guilt and add to anxiety. Give yourself one week to see to the things, take it to the seamstress or transfer it out. You’ll be rid of a heap and will take pleasure in the singular satisfaction of checking something off your to-do list.

5. Unload the unfashionable, unflattering and unhealthy. Certainly, some items are authentic classics and endure the test of time. But clothes worn at a job you no longer have or in a environment you no longer frequent (state, outfits out of the clubbing days) simply need to go, particularly if this job or environment has bad feelings or reduction attached to it. In addition, don’t keep gifts given by people that you do not really like (the clothes or the people). If the tags are still on, go back. Otherwise, consign them and use the cash or store credit to find something you love.

All Things Home Organizing™ by Gayle Grace

Here’s a tough fact: The 1980s are long gone. Even though that has been the most exciting decade of your life, it is time to ditch the clothes and get up-to-date. Since we aren’t always able to see ourselves clearly, another opinion may be a superb mirror.

If you don’t have a buddy to review your wardrobe with you over a bottle of wine, use this time-tested strategy: try on a costume and picture bumping into an old flame. Would you feel confident and sexy wearing it, or awkward and embarrassed? What you felt good in then might not be leveraged today, so embrace who you are today and work with everything you have got.

Snobz Design

We’re not all fashionistas, nor are we all prepared to completely reset our wardrobes. But the bottom line is that the closet needs to be a place of inspiration, not pressure. So lighten your load and keep only what you enjoy and feel beautiful in — whatever your style may be.
